From Frankfurt to Anfield: The evolution of Emre Can

Everything could have been different for Emre Can.

He could have been swayed by those who, in the fledgling years of his career, insisted his natural position was in central defence. Those who suggested that pursuing the path of a midfielder might prevent him from becoming a professional.

He could have been overawed by the increased demands that came with the step up to the second team at Bayern Munich as a developing teenager and a tricky season of learning that presented the first question about his ability to reach the top of the game.

He could have flinched when Jupp Heynckes, the head coach at Bayern when Can was promoted to the German giants’ senior squad, cajoled the young man day after day during training sessions in a manner he wasn’t always sure how to take.
